July is almost over!!!  Where is the summer going?!  I only have one more month of my baby being home with me everyday until he starts pre-school and Brayden starts grade 3!  I could cry.  I need a moment.

Ok back to business.

Here is my July TUSAL.  It looks like a good amount but is actually more frogging orts than stitching orts.

And since I just posted all my progress a few days ago I am only going to show the projects that have progress on them since that post.

First up Halloween Rules by LizzieKate.  I fixed all the mistakes and added a few stitches to the puppy's face.  I hope to get this first block finished by next month.

I finished the first page of my working copy on Deepest Love by Mirabilia

 I am falling behind on my Brooke's Books Advent Animals.  This is the first month since I started that I don't think I am going to have one finished.  I love them but I am going to be happy to be when they are done!

Part 4 of the Steotchalong mystery stitch-a-long is complete.  I don't even have half a guess what it is going to be.  Do any of you?  All their other mystery stitch-a-longs have been movie/tv related...if that helps any!

I have finished 3 colors so far on the March portion of The Joyful World SAL by The Snowflower Diaries.

And lastly I added another word to ABC Christmas by LizzieKate.  This month over at the Christmas Ornie SAL Blog the theme was birds/animals so I stitched Dove.  There is an actual dove beside the word and in real life he doesn't blend into the fabric.

Thanks everyone for stopping by and leaving comments!  I love each and every one of them :)

Happy stitching!

Slack blogger!

Hello out there!

I hope you all are having a wonderful summer.  My boys and I have been keeping busy trying to enjoy as much of our little island as we can.  

I have also been getting in a little stitching here and there which I will show you now.

Still stitching away on the Joyful World SAL from The Snowflower Diaries.  

I made it to the top of another row on Hannah Lynn.  Those rows sure are getting long!

I started on the word "Dove" from ABC Christmas by LizzieKate.

I stitched a bit on Cars while watching The Stitcher's Film Club movies this month.  The two movies chosen this month were Into The Wood and Moulin Rouge!  I really enjoyed both of them!  If any of you would like to join us we have a facebook group, just look up "Stitcher's Film Club"

I finally managed to finish the over one birds on Mothers And Daughters by The Victoria Sampler.  I sure am glad those little birds are finished!

My little puppy dog is almost finished on Halloween Rules  but I found out I made a mistake on the word "Costume" so it is in the process of coming out.

And lastly is my mystery sampler from Steotch.  I have no idea at all what it is going to turn out to be.  I think they only do tv and movie themed patterns, not that that is much help in figuring out what this is going to be.

Well guys I am pretty near cooked!  It has been hot and humid here on PEI so I am going to go get a big glass of ice water and try not to move too much until the sun goes down.

Happy Stitching!

Happy Belated Canada Day and 4th of July!!

And since I got sidetracked yesterday, now belated 4th of July!

Hello to you all!

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday if you celebrate and if not I hope you had a great time with whatever you were doing.  (Hopefully getting some stitching in!)

Here are a couple pictures of my boys from the Canada Day parade.

And here is Brayden on his last day of grade 2!  I can't believe how fast this school year went!

And now a little stitching update!

All I have left on the first block of Halloween Rules is the dog.

I am very close to finishing the first "page" on Deepest Love.  I say "page" because I made a working copy so it will be the first page of my working copy, the actually pattern is really only 1 huge page, front and back.

Remy Rabbit is slow going but getting there.

March from the Joyful World SAL by The Snowflower Diaries is coming along too.  All the orange color is finished and I started adding the prettiest shade of blue.

So yesterday turned out to be quite a day.  I had made plans with a good friend of mine to have an evening of stitching.  After I ate supper, which I had burnt fairly well on the BBQ...yum... I headed out.  I decided to stop for 5 skeins of floss at Micheal's so I just grabbed some change and headed in when I thought no I better go back to the van and grab my wallet, I shouldn't leave it in the van.  While doing so I set my keys on the seat and then proceeded to lock the doors.  45 minutes and a coat hanger later I was on the road again.  I did make it to my friends house but our evening ended up being a lot shorter than we had planned.  Oh well we had a fun time anyway.

Wishing all of you a happy day and hoping you all are getting to do something you love.
